Design Winner Announced for TKTS2K Booth
On February 15, New York Mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani announced that John Choi & Tai Ropiha from Sydney, Australia are the winners of the international competition to redesign the Theatre Development Fund's TKTS discount ticket booth in Duffy Square, New York City. Since 1973, the TKTS booth has played an integral part in supporting the performing arts in New York.
Internationally known for its same-day sales of discount tickets, the TKTS booth has sold 37.6 million tickets to thousands of Broadway, Off Broadway, music and dance productions. Through these discount ticket sales, the theater community has seen a return of over $770 million in revenues. The re-vitalization of Times Square and the age of the existing booth created the need for a new structure to better serve consumers.
